2010 Escape "turn signal relay"?

Hello All;
Is there anyone out there who knows for sure where the turn signal relay (flasher) is located on a 2010 Escape? I am thinking of replacing some of my turn signal bulbs with LEDs. I know from past experiences that the turn signals will flash too fast until I replace the flasher. I know some autos don't use a "flasher" anymore ..... the flashing is controlled by the Electronic Control Unit and I don't think it can be modified. Is my new Escape one that has NO flasher unit? I have checked the "relay / fuse" box under the hood and can't find a turn signal relay. So, I thought maybe someone here could help me out. I haven't bought and installed the LEDs yet (they are pretty expensive) so I am not positive they will flash too fast ..... I am pretty sure they will.

Thanks in advance.... Jerry

Yep, it's all in the Smart Junction Box!

OK, "WPSTKI", could you explain a little farther ...... is the "smart junction box" the one under the hood. If it is, I saw nothing in there that slightly resembled a "flasher relay". And ... are you saying there DEFINITELY is a "flasher relay" and that the flashing isn't controlled by the ECU? I had a late model Mazda and the flashing was controlled by the ECU and┬*mazda is quite closely associated with Ford.

No, it's in the dash. The flashers along with other operations are controlled by the "logic" section of the SJB. No circuits are shown just a dotted outline defined as "logic". I'm looking at a '09 FE wiring diagram.

Any chance of getting a copy of that wiring diagram. Also, must I remove all the dash cowling to get at the turn flasher? The OEM one is too quiet and I want to make it louder.

why go to so much trouble, why don't you buy the load resistor that you can install behind the LED bulb so it will have the same resistance as the normal bulb. you should be able to get the resistor for few dollars each
